The Musical Road

It was amusing, but it is off-key and sounds nothing like the intended music. We drove it twice because it was trippy to listen to. Google it for info about why the sound is messed up.

Musical Road - Singing Road

Stay in the left lane and near the speed limit for the intended tune.

Musical Road - Singing Road

We just drove over the road -- a sign alerts you to it one mile before, and another tells you what lane to drive in. My grouchy kids, tired of being in a car, thought it was fun.

Following your trip on the musical highway with a lunch at Foxy's Landing, you gotta have the peanut butter hamburger. Sounds weird, but once you try it you'll crave another one forever.
